Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) User Survey
The Health and Social Care Act (2012) outlines the requirement for all Health & Well-being Boards to produce a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) summarizing the health and well-being of their local community.
The JSNA is an on going process by which local authorities, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and other public sector partners jointly describe the current and future health and well-being needs of its local population. It brings together a wide range of data, including local views and evidence of what works and is used to plan the services we provide for the next three to five years and reduce inequalities.
We are in the process of refreshing our current JSNA and are now beginning to consult relevant stakeholders, to gather feedback on the current JSNA and preferences around format, structure and method of presentation.
You have been identified as a key stakeholder, and we would really value your views and opinions to support this process.
Welcome to the Healthwatch Bedford Borough website. We are here to make sure your views on local health and social care services are heard.
Our Vision is that Healthwatch Bedford Borough will be:
a critical friend in challenging service providers to ensure that their services are person-centred and responsive to local community needs.
seeking to empower all patients with confidence to make an informed choice about their health and social care needs.
